Pedal Power

Acrylic collage

I have been inspired by bicycles and decided to begin a fourth design in early August. It’s been a busy summer and taken me almost a month to complete this. Drawing is the foundation of all my work and I love doing loose, contour drawings to begin my piece. I believe contour drawing provides a lyrical line and poetic shapes and adds whimsy to my work.

This design is a close-up of one of the wheels. I was attracted to the triangular spaces between the spokes. Pieces of Iowa map with the Missouri and Mississippi rivers provide more interest. Circular shapes have also been a large part of my collage designs. They convey movement and are essential to the design. My major colors are a variety of reds, greens, yellow and blues.
